Rift Finfinnee

Rift Finfinnee
dir. Daniel Kötter/Germany, Ethiopia/2020/79 min.

The film takes the viewer on a journey through the periphery of Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa. In strictly composed images and a soundtrack that interweaves the original conversations in a complex way, the film takes the concrete geography, architecture and the everyday life of individual agricultural and construction workers in the East of Addis Ababa (in Oromo: Finfinnee) as the starting point for an allegorical narrative about how African societies are becoming urban on the edge of civil war.
